INEC extends PVCs collection in Osun, ahead of governorship election

By Olajide Idowu, Osogbo.

 

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Osun State says it has extended the collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in the state, ahead of the state governorship election on July 16.

 

In a statement by the commission’s Public Affairs Officer, Mrs Oluwaseun Osimosu, in Osogbo on Saturday, said that collection of PVCs had been extended to ease collection of PVCs by voters who had yet to collect.

 

“INEC wishes to inform the public, most especially all eligible voters who have yet to collect their Permanent Voter Cards, that they can collect their PVCs at the registration areas (wards) from June 22 to June 26.

 

“The collection would be between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily.

 

“Those coming for their card collection are to come with their registration slip, issued to them during registration exercise, in exchange for the PVCs.

 

“The commission wishes to reiterate that collection by proxy is not allowed.”

 

Osimosu also noted that “PVCs collection is free” and advised those yet to collect their voter cards to use the opportunity of the INEC extension to collect them.

 

She said that the INEC policy of “no PVC, no voting” still subsisted, assuring the electorate that INEC would ensure that their votes would count during the state governorship election.
